About Kidney Research UK:
Kidney Research UK are the leading charity dedicated to kidney research in the UK. Our vision is to free lives from the restrictions, fear, anxiety and life limiting nature of kidney disease.
We fund research into all aspects of kidney disease - from understanding the condition, to how we can prevent and treat it. We want to discover better, kinder treatments.
Research has given us life-saving kidney transplants, dialysis machines that filter the blood when the kidneys fail, and drugs to keep us going. But these treatments come at a cost. They can be gruelling, confining, relentless. A transplant is not a cure, they rarely last a lifetime.
Kidney disease still affects three million people in the UK. And one million of those don’t know they are at risk. That’s three million people who are someone’s parents, grandparents, children, friends.
And kidney failure is rising, as are the factors contributing to it, such as diabetes and obesity.
That’s why our work is more essential than ever.
Research is what we do. It is the only way to discover future preventions, treatments and cures. It is vital to keep our loved ones safe. Your support is crucial to make this happen.
We’re here to be heard, to make a difference, to change the future. Kidney disease ends here.
